|Amos 6: 1, 4 - 7
||"Woe to those who are at ease in Zion, and to those who feel secure on the mountain of Sama'ria, the notable men of the first of the nations, to whom the house of Israel come!
||"Woe to those who lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat lambs from the flock, and calves from the midst of the stall;
||who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp, and like David invent for themselves instruments of music;
||who drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph!
||Therefore they shall now be the first of those to go into exile, and the revelry of those who stretch themselves shall pass away."
